I like robots. A lot. I started actively collecting in 1998, but I always had lots of toys as a kid. I had Shogun Warriors and Star Wars toys mostly. I was heavily influenced by shows like Force 5, Robotech, Voltron, Captain Harlock, Starblazers, Speed Racer and Battle of the Planets. Today, I run CollectionDX!

I've been a fan of toys almost since before I could speak. I cut my teeth buying everything from the Real Ghostbusters line that I could, and I later moved on to amass huge collections of Power Rangers mecha, Transformers, and other goodies.

After many years of reading and enjoying the reviews on CDX, I finally decided to join up and share my expertise. Pictures of my collections will be uploaded to my gallery as soon as I get some better photo equipment, but in the meantime, you can view most of my stuff on my DA page, in the gallery that I whimsically dubbed my "Mechollection". http://tasakeru828.deviantart.com/gallery/10690876

A big fan of both mecha and moe figures. Besides collecting toys, I'm also an artist and enjoy watching anime.

I like Macross and Gundam. Robots that turn into jets are good. I have some other random stuff, some Transformers, some Henshin Cyborg, stuff like that, but I'm trying to cull it down to the essentials.

I've been collecting Transformers since the 80's. While I loved Robotech, back in the day, Macross has surpassed this by tenfold. Havne't been able to quite start collecting Macross yet, but soon enough...

I've loved robots since a found a discarded transformer lost on a beach as a child. I've always appreciated old diecast figures, although I don't own too many myself. I am a fan of both old and new robot cartoons.

My current collection of modern gokin include Aoshima's Neo Getter Robo (black), CM's GoShogun and Sankanoh, and Yamato's Danguard Ace.

My current collection of classic gokin include ST Dynarobo, two ST Laserions (Japanese and American releases), DX Laserion, and a Voltron of some model that has seen better days.

On the plastic front I have a Toybox Nekobot a surprisingly nice KO Mightgaine, and a troop of Glyos figures.

The pride of my collection is, Voltron "Trapped on Jungle Planet," a 24 page book and tape. It's still sealed in it's original packaging!

The first toys I had a passion for collecting were transformers. Optimus Prime was the ideal image of my own father, and him being a truck driver tied the two together even closer. From the first site of transformers, I knew I was a huge robot fan. Unfortunately, my mother threw out all these toys and did not allow me to collect them. A book was produced in the 80s called "Turmoil in the Toybox," that accused all the cartoons and toys of our childhood of being tools of the devil. Through out my childhood I had small bouts of enjoying transformers and Go-bots given to me by relatives before my mother would throw them into the trash. The only other toy I had a passion for as a child was micro machines, most of which were destroyed by a deranged cousin I had. As a teenager, I was able to collect things like Exo Squad and some Gundam, however I had to convince my mother Gundam was not at all related to a cuss word.
Once I became an adult and moved out on my own I began collecting some toys. The few things left over from my childhood and then onto anything I liked. I did not buy that many things till my early 20s. I had became a graphic designer and gained interest in art toys. From 2002 onward my collection slowly grew. Things from the G1 Optimus Prime reissue and other retro robots I used to own to rare designer figures. I did not regulate my collecting to any genera or class, if I liked the design I got it. Everything from happy meal toys, to Chogokin. While my collecting has slowed down due to space, I tend to get things that I have to have. A lot of what I buy reflects my own style or inspires me for making my own custom toys. I do not collect for rarity or value, but because I enjoy the designs, or art of the toy. Because of this, I only keep boxes that are either well designed, or for super fragile/ rare figures for safer packing if and when I have to move. While I had not counted in at least a few years I estimate close to 2,000 items in my toy collection.

I do take daily toy photos on instagram you can check out here:

I love robots of many varieties. My work for CDX is more focused on the obscure or unusual, but most of my collection is made up of classic Gokin and Real Robot-era pieces. My favorite toys of all time are Diaclone. My robo-fetishes are diecast, transparency, magnets, and motorcycles, although you could say that goofiness, ugliness, weirdness, and obscurity are also fetishes.

My favorite designers are Syd Mead and Kawamori Shoji.

I am an architect in beautiful Denver, CO. My other obsessions are music, design, Vespas, and reading.

Started actively collecting in 2008 with Super Robot Wars model kits. Since then, my collection has expanded with plenty of Gundam kits (largely HGs) and other plamodels, S.H. Figuarts and assorted Kamen Rider merchandise, Super Robot Chogokins, and slowly obtaining more Super Action Statues and Transformers.

My earliest childhood memory is of seeing a Jumbo Shogun Warrior Daimos hidden in a closet as a gift. I had all the Shogun jumbos as a kid, but none of the diecasts so as an adult collector, my main focus has been Jumbo Machinders, including Junior Machinders, Mini Machinders, Carnival Machinders and anything else that seems to fit into the genre but recently I've decided to try to collect, and document for the site, everything Shogun related. I do collect other things as well including classic American monsters, Japanese robots and kaiju, action figures, comic books, dvds, posters, Halloween costumes, board games and anything else that I think will look good on display. Basically anything vintage horror, sci-fi and fantasy is fair game!

I was a big fan of Transformers as a kid. Over the years, I picked up a few TFs to add to what I had left over from my childhood, and eventually I hada good sized collection. Now, I've expanded into other giant robot toys, notably Voltron, Shogun Warriors, and Power Rangers/Sentai mecha. Love to share the toy collecting with my two sons!

I'm currently an ME student in Georgia, who spends prolly too much money on toys as it is. I've been a fan of robots since I was about 2 years old, when I watched SD Gundam for the first time. This was my first anime exposure as I crossed the threshold into merchandise hell. Since then I've collected a lot of things, mostly robots though. I was very big into the real robot genre in my teens, until I found out about Go Nagai. Since then I think I may be an even bigger super robot fan instead. There's something so... primal and feral about it that's just incredibly awesome. Super Robot Wars, Kamen Rider, and Gundam are probably some of my favorite things, when it comes to shows, video games, and toys of course.
